All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
The Best of Broadway is exactly that, a collection of some of the biggest songs from Broadway, taken from original cast recordings and revivals. Where many of these Broadway collections fail to get the actual stage cast to perform the music, this gathers some of the best-known cast members from the productions.
